Gr. 8 Assignment: Grade 8 students have a cumulative unit quiz on surface area and volume of prisms this Friday. To prepare Gr. 8’s are to review all measurement of prisms lessons and to complete the unit review and the practice test to prepare. The specific assignment is…
-unit review: 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15
-unit practice test: suggested to complete this but it is optional
Note: for more instruction on these concepts see the videos in the past lessons on measurement of solids.
This week we are spiraling back to fractions. Grade 7’s are reviewing fractions, decimals and percents where Gr. 8s are dividing decimals. Whilst students are reviewing these past concepts we will also be doing interventions based on our current MRLC results to ensure students are growing past their “sticking points” in math.
Grade 7 Suggested Materials for Study: p. 120 review of Fractions, Decimals, and Percents. Complete all questions. Practice test on page 122.
This week we are discussing probability in both Grade 7 and 8 Math. Grade 7’s are discussing different ways of expressing probability using different methods of representation from fractions, to percent, to decimals. Grade 8’s are discussing how the likelihood of independent events happening.
Grade 7 Assignment: click the link below for the assignment and watch the videos for extra help with converting between different forms of numbers (dec., fractions and more). Grade 7 are to do all questions of the assignment.
